Anyone who has any degree of leadership ability and experience certainly was confronted at some point of his or her career with the fact that certain measures or decisions that prove to be very good in the short term, in the long run tend to be disastrous. But in political terms in our world, short term measures are often better because they provide the kind of superficial results that gain votes and frequent elections; what happens then is of no consequence for the politicians involved, for there is no responsibility in their acts.
If you go to Las Vegas and spend the college money of your kids-soon-to-become-teenagers betting recklessly, you will cause a tremendous damage for your children as well for yourself. You would be to blame in that case, and in all probability, you will blame yourself.
But a politician who does the same seldom looks back; in the past that used to be different although humanity never had an ideal season in these terms. But consider this: British and German Generals and Admirals used to have a lot of privileges like big houses, huge salaries, immunity for many of their acts, chauffeurs and luxury cars and so on. But it was also clear for them that if they lost a battle, they would lose all those privileges, and would also probably have to shot themselves to save their family honor. Would any politician, anywhere in the world – including Germany and the U.K. - do the same these days?
And in this social environment, leaders tend, of course, to use their power as broadly and deeply as they can. So now we have a society where hidden cameras are common, where tax revenue agencies know about every little use of money that you have, and where with the excuse of terrorism all sorts of absurd measures that – by the way – caught not a single terrorist so far, are enforced to pester passengers, tourists and common citizens.
The reason for all this is that the state – any state – is increasing its grip over its citizens in a subdued way. This is a dangerous tendency, and real leaders, with real leadership skills and strategic thinking capability should swear to stop.
Read and start thinking about it.
